Running in the Yorkshire Wolds
Pocklington Runners is a UK Affiliated running club which aims to provide a social or competitive atmosphere where you can enjoy running in and around the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds.
We encourage runners of all abilities who wish to run socially, competitively, on road or trails.
Meet at the club on Monday evenings at 6:30pm. Focus on improving fitness while having fun. Session run by one of the club's LiRFs (Leader in Running Fitness).
Our main club nights are on a Wednesday evening, meeting at Pocklington Rugby Club at 6:30 pm, where we focus on a social run each week. There will be a variety of routes, distances and paces on offer to suit all runners - heading out into the beautiful Wolds and surrounding countryside. Afterwards enjoy free tea / coffee and biscuits. The bar is normally open for those wishing to purchase a beer or a soft drink.
The popular and well established race is a fairly flat, fast 10 miler, ideal as part of a Spring Marathon training plan or as an early target for your season. As its name suggests, the course has a winding stretch that snakes its way through the beautiful East Yorkshire countryside at the foot of the glorious Wolds.
The 30th anniversary Snake Lane event will be held on Sunday 27 February 2022. Race start 09:00
